Want to engage your students? Introducing Elon Musk. Musk is working to revolutionize transportation both on Earth and in space.
This print-and-go activity will empower your students to learn all about Elon Musk and the revolution he has sparked.
This research primer on Elon Musk is part of the Game Changers Biography Series and can be used in a multitude of ways.

In my own class, I often use the research primers as a student-centered way to get my learners engaged with upcoming material. I tend to book the computer lab and have learners complete the guide (either individually or in small groups) over one class period. We usually start the next day with a share-out and brainstorm the findings together. This way, the students drive the content, and all I have to do is scaffold the learning and fill in the blanks. Once we are all on the same page, I introduce our larger research project.
Get a feel for my work and see if this resource is right for you.
